[image]Tikhonravov's Eyebrows - NASA/JPL/Malin Space Science Systems
1 January 2004 This red wide angle Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) image shows Tikhonravov Crater in central Arabia Terra. The crater is about 386 km (240 mi) in diameter and presents two impact craters at its center that have dark patches of sand in them, giving the impression of pupils in two eyes. North (above) each of these two craters lies a dark-toned patch of surface material, providing the impression of eyebrows...

[image]Nyiragongo Volcano, Congo, Map View with Lava, Landsat / ASTER / SRTM - NASA/JPL/NIMA
The Nyiragongo volcano in the Congo erupted on January 17, 2002, and subsequently sent streams of lava into the city of Goma on the north shore of Lake Kivu. More than 100 people were killed, more than 12,000 homes were destroyed, and hundreds of thousands were forced to flee the broader community of nearly half a million people. This Landsat satellite image shows the volcano (right of center), the city of Goma, and surrounding terrain...

This anaglyph (stereoscopic view) of Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula was generated entirely from Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) data, and shows a subtle but distinctive indication of the Chicxulub impact crater.

[image]Stereo Pair, Mount St Helens, Washington State - NASA
On May 18, 1980, Mount St. Helens catastrophically erupted, causing the worst volcanic disaster in the recorded history of the United States. An earthquake shook loose the northern flank of the volcano, and about 2.8 cubic kilometers (0.67 cubic miles) of rock slid downslope in the world's largest recorded landslide. The avalanche released pressure on the volcano and unleashed a huge explosion, which was directed generally northward...

[image]Patches of Hematite - NASA/JPL/Cornell/ASU
These maps, acquired from the Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity prior to the rover's roll-off, are shown along with data collected at the five locations the rover visited along the Meridiani Planum rock outcrop (dubbed "Alpha," "Bravo," "Charlie," Delta," and "Echo"). The data, collected by the rover's miniature thermal emission spectrometer, has been superimposed on images taken by the navigation camera...

[image]Rippled Mars - NASA/JPL/Malin Space Science Systems
MGS MOC Release No. MOC2-524, 25 October 2003 This Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Mars Orbiter Camera (MOC) image shows a rugged surface southwest of Huygens Basin that is covered by large windblown ripples or small dunes. Their orientations indicate that the responsible winds came from either the northwest (upper left) or southeast (lower right), or both. The more complex ripple patterns within the two large craters result from local topographic influences on the wind...

[image]Salt Lake City, Utah, Winter 2001 - NASA/GSFC/METI/ERSDAC/JAROS, and U.S./Japan ASTER Science Team
The 2002 Winter Olympics are hosted by Salt Lake City at several venues within the city, in nearby cities, and within the adjacent Wasatch Mountains. This simulated natural color image presents a snowy, winter view of north central Utah that includes all of the Olympic sites. The image extends from Ogden in the north, to Provo in the south; and includes the snow-capped Wasatch Mountains and the eastern part of the Great Salt Lake...
